(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: ON GOD BY DMW “WHERE IS PERUZZI? DID HE GO TO…”

IG @ogefashblog.

The artistes use this song to

ascribe their success and achievements to God. They acknowledge the presence of God in their lives and endeavours. They let people know that they have come far in life in their career because God is involved in their matter.

They say they are international because of God. According to DMW artistes, they say they do not misbehave or make noise because it is empty “Barrel that makes the loudest noise” that is what the chorus taken by Mayorkun literally means…

“Oni miliki o s’ere (On God) (The one who has milk in the container is not acting crazy)”
“Alagolo lo sin’wi (No cap) (The one with empty container is the one acting crazy one)”

They also say they can’t be compared to others because they will standout when put together. They thank God in advance for the “more money” he is still going to give to them.

Hmmm, so Davido in verse I said “These kids they be taking it personal” who was he referring to as kids? I guess he was referring to his haters; those envious of his success- Lol!

But where is Peruzzi now? Is he not part of DMW again? Did he go to the restroom; that must have been the case!
